Netflix just announced it is bringing back Orange is the New Black for a 5th, 6th and 7th season. The streaming service's original series, created by Jenji Kohan (Weeds) and produced by Lionsgate, has been a hit since it debuted in 2013. With many award nominations during its first three seasons, including for Golden Globes and Emmys, the decision from Netflix to continue renewing the show isn't a surprise.

"Three more years! Not quite a political term, but still plenty of time to do some interesting things," said Kohan in a press release. "In some cultures, 'May you lead an interesting life,' is a curse, but I don't live in those cultures." We shall see where the story goes when season four premieres June 17th on Netflix.
